Nice almost perfect clear amber color. Not too light or too dark. 1/2" head that becomes a thin foamy layer leaving minimal lacing. Smells of sweet malts and yeasty bananas. Some spicy floral thrown in for good measure. A light hint of apples and pears. Taste is very good. The apples come to the front on this one. Maltiness follows close behind bringing pears, caramel, and spices with it. Nice tight little bubbles help create a very nice feel. Like lightly bubbled velvet. Very good drinking to be done with this bottle. Light enough to enjoy many, and often. The alcohol can creep up on you, though, so watch yourself!

bomber @50ºF poured in a chalice pours amber with a off white fluffy head that lingers a bit and then recedes to about a quarter inch cap. Aroma is yeasty with apricots and some earthiness.The taste is spicy subdued hoppiness and lots of malt the finish is a little yeasty.Good job Mike and Shawn

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2010
22 oz. bottle from Midtown Liquors in Tulsa. Pours a cloudy amber with some orange and red tints and a finger-thick, foamy eggshell white head. Aroma of floral hops, banana, yeast, pepper, clove, sweet malts, pears, and apples. Flavor is also floral, fruity, yeasty, malty, sweet, and spicy. Really nice and complex. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Alcohol is completely masked. Very cool beer, and the best thing I’ve had yet from the state of Oklahoma.

jgentgesdo (665) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Pours translucent medium yellow with a medium off-white head. Nose is rather sharp malts, spicy yeast notes, and some floral hops. Flavor is balanced towards malt, nice citrus notes in the middle, with hops and spicy yeast evident towards the end of the drink. Some alcohol evident. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Absolutely the best offering yet from Krebs.

IrishBoy (3803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle from Soonah! Nose of yeast, very light funkiness, and a little corriander; lightly hazed amber with a big beige head; flavor is light caramel, some spicy pepperiness, light tart notes, and some very miniscule alcohol warth in the finish. Pretty good BDG!

22oz bottle shared by a BeerBeggar after a trip to Tulsa. This was a remarkably well made brew, right to style. Has nice malty backbone, which was accentuate by pear and other muted fruits. Strongly yeasty yet malty and drinkable. Had a medium body. It drank very well, was well made to style (it was definitely not a Saison and more of a BdG, for my understanding of the styles). I want to drink this again.

(Bottle) Pours an even amber color with a small beige head. Spicy and malty aroma. Taste includes some muted spice, as well as lots of malts. Notes of pepper, candy sugar and rich caramel malts. Good palate, with low carbonation. Balanced for the most part, but gets a little sweet in the aftertaste. A great beer!

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Poured a clear bright copper color with a foamy, off-white head that provided some lacing and collapsed into a galaxy swirl atop the beer that lasted to the bitter end. The aroma was malt, some faint Belgian yeast, caramel and sugary sweetness. The flavor was sweet caramel up front with the Belgian yeast and some mild citrus and peppery spice coming into play. The mouthfeel was nice if slightly on the oily side. Alcohol not noticed at all. Very nice, very easy to drink!

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Appearance: Pours a hazy, orangey body with a small white head. Smell: Aroma of caramel malts, a handful of grains, a handful of field flowers, with a bright golden delicious apple fruitiness and a pinch of yeasty spice. Taste: Light caramel maltiness with a bit of graininess. More of the fruity apple character from the nose. Light floral hoppiness with just a touch of bitterness. Peppery, tartish finish and then it’s over. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Not bad! It’s a treat to finally try something from the great state of Oklahoma.
